According to the 2010 Census website, the information gathered is used to advocate for causes, rescue disaster victims, prevent diseases, research markets, locate pools of skilled workers, in addition to determining the numbers of seats your state occupies in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Census data is used to establish services and infrastructure in your community. The website states, “Accurate data reflecting changes in your community are crucial in … deciding how more than $400 billion per year is allocated for projects like new hospitals and schools.”
